Merchandise Description
As an art and a science, medical music therapy can break down barriers, enhance relationships, and integrate into the adult medical setting to promote health. This monograph highlights obstetrics, intensive care, general medical/surgical, and cancer care. Chapters are specific to a hospital unit, yet full of information relevant across the adult medical setting. Content is based on evidence from the literature, clinical experience, and strong relationships between the therapists, their patients and families and the staff with whom they work. The central focus is on inpatient services with applicability to outpatient services. Helpful tips and practical knowledge inform the frequently short-term treatment process. Case studies illustrate the efficacious nature of music therapy in the medical environment and sample forms provide examples of documentation. This publication clearly exemplifies the benefit and role of music therapy with adults in the medical setting. Professionals and students looking to explore new areas of clinical practice will benefit from the detailed information on acute service delivery. Hospital administrators and medical personnel will gain a clearer understanding of the value and function of music therapy to patients and the interdisciplinary treatment team. Current medical music therapists will find this resource valuable for program expansion, as supporting documentation of current practice, and as an educational tool for interns and co-workers. Written by Deanna Hanson-Abromeit and Cynthia Colwell. ISBN # 978-1-884914-27-0. Publication date: 2010
